Duh, cowboy. You incentivize them to get off their lazy dead ass, hire workers and perform to contract. In other words you fire the shiftless lazy f#cks at SupShip and start rewarding the shipyards that do meet their obligations with more work and stop sending ships to the crappy shipyards that don't perform to specification. Duh!!!!!
I remember the Navy when I got commissioned, that towed my first ship, USS Connole out of a failing shipyard in Boston in spite of the shipyard trying to use cranes to blockade the ship in their yard. They underperformed hugely and finally the Navy grew a pair and towed their ship out and sent it to another yard. I got more and better quality work done in a 10 day Dry Docking SRA in Bahrain or Jubail then I did in a 10 week Dry Dock SRA in Southwest Marine in San Diego or in a 9 month DSRA in Todd Shipyard, Seattle.
There is a huge difference between people who do work for industry where time is money and those who do "work" for government where time doesn't matter and overruns are just part of the business of low-balling bids.
And for those who think we need to preserve the defense industrial base, no we don't. We are way better off letting the crap stick to the wall and dry in the sunlight of total exposure. If you doubt me, look at what happened after NASA was jacked up and space flight got true competition. We also saw it in WWII. When the regulator swings a big stick, compliance follows and everybody profits.
It is probably time to refocus the courts and teach them their responsibility again. They are skating very close to the edge where any sane elected official is just going to invite them to rally their tank divisions on the National Mall and go head to head with the elected government. One judge in one state does not have the right to overturn the actions of the government or the President.
